For Platform21=Hacking IKEA we invited artists, designers and the general public to come up with new IKEA Hacks. Anyone can participate.
Step 1: Ingredients
-IKEA LAMPAN 2,50 Euro
-Light bulb. I used one with a concentrated light beam for higher heat
Step 2: Prepping the Candles
1.Take the candles out of the little tin cup.
2.Take the wicks out of the candles.
3.Cut one candle in half.
You could just leave the candles as they are but this way it looks nicer in the end as it all melts into one big strawberry scented pie.
Step 3: Drill Ventilation Holes
Step 4: Putting It All Together
2.Put the candles in.
3.Screw the lightbulb into place.
4.Put it together and switch on.
The heat from the light bulb will make the candle wax sweat and eventually it will dissolve completely.
Step 5: Submerge Yourself in Strawberry Fields
TIP: You could use the top of the lamp to keep your stash of candles. It doesn't get very hot there.
I haven't tested this thing on safety so use it responsibily! Don't leave it on when you leave the house.
